So… you know how I've been saying that my work computer is all virused up and I blame the terrorists? Well, I was taking a nice long drink of my coffee and listening to one of Milton's endless stories about her socks (AGAIN!) when my screen went black and then came back up… something was different but I couldn't quite put my finger on it.
It looked a little off center I guess but since I always have my head tilted to the right, it didn't really hit me that it had rotated!
I quickly grabbed my cell phone to take a picture of this bizarre phenomenon and then brought everybody in the office to marvel at the cool things my computer can do when nobody is even touching the keyboard. Ooh! Ahh!
Then, after the novelty and the hahas wore off, I was left extremely pissed off because I didn't know how to fix it! I clumsily restarted the damn thing and it came back on still looking ass-sideways. So I called the tech guy aka Tin-Man and he scratched his head and said "what a pickle you've gotten yourself into!" and I had to remind him that I do not get myself into pickles... they kind of just land on me with no warning.
After he hemmed and hawed he left saying he had no clue and had to go help out with a surgery. Chump! I'm more important than some guy whose leg is hanging on only by one nerve!
Nobody knew what to do until I used my picture viewing savy and tried "ctr alt up-arrow". I don't know what the technical term is but I'm calling it the "Alice in Wonderland Special".
Fuckin terrorist and their powers over my computer!
Also, Andy has a man cold (poor little bunny!) which translated means he has been at (--please picture William Shatner saying this) the. brink. of. death. every second of every day since Saturday.
He thinks that his little bitty sniffles excuse him from being quiet while I'm doing silly things like SLEEPING. He must let the world know how much it hurts him to cough because if he suffers we. must. suffer!
In other world news, we should welcome Dizzy Mom from The Dizzy Life of Me to the blogworld. She started her blog just this weekend. In her honor, I would like to host a "Bizarre/Weird WTF-was-I-thinking? Picture day".
What is that? You may ask. Well, my nosey friend, we bloggers will sometimes come across something we think is the monkey's bananas that might make a great post so we take a picture. Then time passes and you either forget about it or decide it's lame so it remains sitting in the dark recesses of your computer never to see the light of day.
For example, I took this picture and thought I was going to do a WHOLE post about how we're all going to hell but then Christmas passed so now it's too late.
It has to be a picture you or your husband/wife/mom/dad/girlfriend/boyfriend/dog took since we don't want to just regurgitate the same old-same old pictures we all get via chain letter emails.
You know which ones I'm talking about, right?? The ones that have been circulating since 1892?
Anyway, email me if you'd like to participate with a link to your blogs so I may post your links here. firstname.lastname@example.org The year you took the picture doesn't matter.
The letting me know deadline is Sunday and I'm thinking we can post our pictures on Tuesday January 27th. Remember, blogger gives you an option to POST DATE to whatever date your heart desires. This means you can do the picture post ahead of time and then just put it to post on the 27th.
Come on! Please? Don't leave me hangin'! (Brian) I think it'll be fun and hopefully generate some traffic to your blogs from people wanting to see what sick demented things you guys took a picture of but decided against posting.
Don't give me any excuses as to why you can't play because I will take your excuses, throw them on the floor and then stomp on them with my size sevens! Okay, I won't stomp 'em. I'll just be sitting in a corner feeling sad and singing Air Supply.
